    In part three of Hello World Shenzhen, Bloomberg Businessweek’s Ashlee Vance heads out into a city where you can't use cash or credit cards, only your smartphone, where AI facial-recognition software instantly spots and tickets jaywalkers, and where at least one factory barely needs people. This is the society that China's government and leading tech companies are racing to make a reality, with little time to question which advancements are net positives for the rest of us.

The only difference between the West and China is that the Western governments lie, cover up, hide and misinform people about what they're doing towards their bosses, which is us, the people. One example is the CIA and NSA who do everything in secret and then lie under oath in Congress when questioned about their activities. We get spied on all the time. China on the other hand, doesn't care about being subtle. They aren't a democracy and don't need to hide what they're doing.

Robots are superior to Humans in Repedetive tasks. Heck i'd rather empoly 20 Robots than 40 Humans because they can work non-stop day in day out all year round with the only pay being Maintenence done by Humans and Electricity. So dont throw the Automation Argument into a Dystopia Argument. They are Mutualy exclusive. The QR-Code Argument is also Invalid, as it makes life more simple. Its a Utopian thing, sure what for one is a Utopia is to another a Dystopia but to me it seems like a nice thing. Also WHO THE FUCK USES AMEX?! Seriousy! Also there is a massive ideology diffirence, the Eastern world is known for its collectivisim and the Western with its "Freedom" & Individuality at the expense of Quality of Life. Sure i grown up in a western place but i dont favor this Individualistic Idiology. Indivdualisim in Entertainment and such is fine, but other than that its Unessicary and needless formal bother.

I'm an expat living in Shanghai and I've been living in China for the last 6 years, I j-walked many times and never got my wechat fined or anything. It is true that there is the facial recognition takes pictures of peoplej-walking and then they get published on TV screens in bus stops but nobody really cares because the majority of people are strangers in a big city that has 20 million people living in it.

People won't understand the importance of the things mentioned in the video if they haven't studied law. Most countries have facial recognition software and the technology to make them. The thing is in most first world countries using information acquired by illicit means and spying have heavy restrictions before they can be used in court. Normally you get stopped by an officer he/she issues you a ticket and you go fight the ticket in court or you pay. There is a process setup to prevent abuse and give people a fair chance. Here in this instance, a robot captured his face went through a WHOLE legal process and fined him and took money out of his account, all within 30 seconds.

that's the problem with westerner. you don't adapt to technology. you criticize it. if these people lose their jobs, they will find another one and not whine. social credit is the same as credit score and criminal background check no? except petty crimes like literring speeding or running a light will be taken into account. you can get citation too in the west but they're not enforced although it should. maybe that's why violent crime is higher in the west especially usa since there are no social credit. they can speed, run stop sign, litter, curse with no repercussions. many complain that chinese people are rude and dirty. this will get people to change. you litter you get bad score, you don't you will get better score.

well no one is stopping china to simply buyout the counterparts of US "social" media services. or at least get enough shares to "monitor" and "demand". If people think that capitalism is only embedded in a "democratic republic" system ... they will soon learn how powerful and ruthless a authoritative capitalist system like china can be. It is a testament to the effectiveness of Chinas SEZs policy. One should admire such... efficiency.

this video is entertaining but it sadly also follows the classic pattern of western reporting on china for the last 30 years = wow china is opening up and so big, what's REALLY going on there? let's go and find out! > shots of the many people, big buildings, fast pace > reporter overwhelmed, omg ! > where to start? let's ask opinionated but unqualified people to weigh in (usually taxi drivers but in this case newbie foreigners working in "tech start ups"> anecdotal evidence treated as deep insight > reporter says ok that's interesting but let's go deeper, ask a more informed person, i.e. an approachable English speaking Chinese woman with a job > she says something that is common for every Chinese but sounds revelatory to non-Chinese (for example, Chinese are used to government interference in their daily lives) > conclusion: What have we learned? China is complex and changing fast! But, who know anything anyway? What we DO know is they serve beer in China and Chinese women are friendly to foreign journalists. Well we need to wait and see what happens in the future!... roll credits and er hu music. The problem with this type of reporting is that it reinforces a stereotype that China is unknowable. Foreign journalists need to stop being so lazy and superficial, stop being wowed by China and actually get to the heart of the story because Chinese journalists, who are the ones who have the real insight, are being marginalized to the point where they don't have the luxury of your freedom of speech.

Nobody is envious of a country in which no individual has any right to freedom of expression, there is no freedom of the press and people are being marked for social credit or shaming according to the government's all-seeing eye. There is NO way to appeal such designations. It is disgusting how all of this is somehow smoothed over by the tech advances. Who cares about your tech, it is just another way to restrict human beings and force them to work in your feudal, backwards, communist state.

I travelled in china in most of the large cities and some of the smaller tourist ones. Only the large hotels and large businesses  would take credit cards but they had to be "union certified" visa or mastercard. Most small business preferred cash or wechat. I ended up just paying cash for everything and accessed my Australian US and Canadian bank accounts quite easily from the bank cash machines that of course always charged a fee.

What s wrong with automatically fining jaywalkers though? Every border crossing in the world has a method to take pictures as a means to regulate/monitor the movement of people. Using the pictures in a centralised manner to pinpoint offenders is just technological efficiency. This was a bad example, in my opinion.
